Evaluations

Postby Kess » Wed Oct 05, 2011 5:53 pm

I know that most schools don't care about this, but when I was getting my recommendation letters back in the spring, I also got evaluations from the same people. Is there any sense in submitting those?

No reason not to. Some won't let you.

I submitted them to whoever let me submit them.

Do you think it matters that they are from same people as the ones that did my recommendations?

I would think they're supposed to be--it's like a quantifiable supplement to the recommendation.

That's what I thought, but my pre-law adviser thought otherwise but I have a hard time trusting her judgment at times. lol

Haha, my prelaw advisors are the same. Remember: if they had any talent, they would be out there working as lawyers instead of telling undergrads how to do it.

Well she went to Yale (or maybe that was for UG... lol) so she must know something. It might be that I just don't like her general personality.

I would imagine that the evaluations are especially useful when they supplement LORs because law schools seem to love anything to do with rankings/ratings.

Just be careful to read the instructions. Off the top of my head, I know that Cornell allows you to submit Evals on top of your LOR's, but say that they should not come from the same people.

Yeah I am going to have reread everything before I submit. So far I attached 3 LoR to all of my schools, but will attach the evaluations when I review.
